Let's Keep it Clean!

Handcrafted vegetable glycerin soap bars made in small batches in rural Perthshire, Scotland

Glycerin soaps are considered to be one of the most moisturizing types of soap. Glycerin is a vegetable-derived humectant which attracts moisture from the air to your skin and keeps it locked in. Unlike some soaps that dry your skin out and make it feel tight and even flaky, glycerin soap keeps your skin feeling more hydrated for several hours after you use it.

With incredible fragrances and skin-softening ingredients like olive oil they’re effective, great for your skin, and great for the environment, too. Why not give them a try?

Christmas Presents that Don’t Cost the Earth

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a peculiar year. It appears although the year never really got really started and now Christmas is just around corner. It’s hard to predict exactly what it will look like but it certainly won't be what we're used to. In these times of social distancing, when we might not be able to see our friends and family in person, delivering a gift to a loved one’s door is a special way to show they’re in our thoughts. Gifts are really gestures of thoughtfulness and a soap gift fills a practical need too.

There’s been a definite emphasis on shopping small this year and also an awareness of environmental factors when buying gifts for others. People are less keen to purchase something that the recipient will use once, then throw away. Of course everyone still wants to find a perfect gift for Dad or Gran or even the beloved family dog but they don't want to contribute to all the unnecessary waste that occurs during the most wonderful time of the year.

If your idea of the perfect gift includes being kind to the environment, then you're in the right place. Smelleez Christmas gifts are 100% zero waste - not one single piece of material from your purchase will have to go to landfill, and can instead be reused, recycled, repurposed or composted. Smelleez soaps are kind to both skin and the planet and a vegan friendly vegetable glycerin soap bar wrapped in compostable paper just happens to be the perfect size to fit into a Christmas stocking!

Although we don't know exactly what Christmas 2020 will look like just yet, one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be one to remember.
